tuna and mango refresher


This cheerful little starter refreshes the palate and lifts the spirits.


A set of ring moulds is worthwhile investing in especially one that includes a pusher. It is important to compress the stack in a gentle manner otherwise it is likely to topple over and that just will not do. Pretty up the plate with dots and trails of herb oil if you like. A good tip for making dots (see photo) is to buy a medicine measure from the chemist. It can be a risky business putting dots on a plate when all other ingredients are in place so a device that will not let you down is vital. This little measure has a squeeze top allowing greater control when dot size matters.



Serves: 4


1 slightly under ripe mango, peeled and finely diced

2 mini cucumbers, peeled and finely diced

200gm fresh, sashimi quality tuna, finely diced

4 teaspoons lump fish caviar

2 teaspoons Spanish sherry vinegar

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

few chives, finely chopped


Method:


Dice the mango, cucumber and tuna. Place in separate bowls. Mix the oil, vinegar and chives together, stir the dressing into the tuna.


Place each ring mould on a plate and spoon in the mango, the cucumber and lastly the tuna. Place teaspoon lumpfish caviar on top of each one and serve. Garnish the plate with a little herb oil.
